Clouds will slowly increase this afternoon as our next storm system slowly approaches from the west. In the meantime though, a few hours of sunny skies will be available this morning, and the storm’s precipitation will hold off until late tonight. Look for high temps ranging from 15 in the north to 30 in the south with light northwest winds this morning becoming calm this afternoon. Enjoy the beautiful day and get outside if you can!
Snow arrives from west to east tonight around/a little after midnight. Look for a general 1-3″ away from the immediate coast before a change to sleet progresses from west to east mid-morning. During that time, the rain/frozen line will be advancing northward through the coastal plain but will get hung up in the foothills as weak cold air damming establishes itself. This isn’t a classic CAD setup as there’s no high pressure to the north that’s able to feed cold dry air in, but it should be at least good enough for a delayed rain transition, and thus icy roads for the morning commute. Residual rain/freezing rain will clear out Friday night with a cold front re-establishing our seasonal temps Saturday.
